2013 All Wheel Drive Cars


A Trend In 2013 AWD Cars


More and more manufacturers are sticking drive-shafts to all four corners. It just makes sense if you live in an area that gets inclement weather or if you like to go off the beaten path every once and awhile and get yourself and car dirty. With the ability to get traction and power with all four wheels makes getting around in snow much more easily and makes handling more stable and gives you the ability to correct a slide as 20% to 30% of the engines power is exerted to the front tires so that they can pull that ass end out of a slide.


Manufacturers of 2013 AWD Cars


There are many more manufacturers of 2013 AWD cars then there use to be, manufacturers like Audi and Subaru where some of the few that focused on AWD cars for their entire line up. Today Subaru remains with an All-wheel-drive line up with the exception of the new 2013 Subaru BRZ and with rising gasoline prices yet the ability to get off-road (to an extent) means that more and more individuals are being attracted to the Subaru’s other than lesbians and Coloradoans. The setup that these manufacturers use differs on how the power is transferred as 2013 Subaru WRX STI uses a center differential and helical Front and Torsion rear limited-slip differentials. This setup can actually be fine tuned by the driver as they can set where they want the majority of power to go.  Some all-wheel drive setups like the 2013 Nissan GTR have a front mounted engine with a shaft that connects to a rear mounted transmission, transfer case, and differential and then takes a second drive shaft to the front of the car where it goes to a front mounted differential. This system is not typical but as you can see from the badass stats the 2013 Nissan GTR can throw down, it works.

Typical and Future 2013 AWD Cars


2013 AWD Cars

With more and more manufacturers on the list for 2013 AWD cars we are seeing concepts and now production cars like the 2013 Acura NSX that are using a standard Rear Wheel Drive setup and electric motors up front to generate the sweet spot of power to improve handling. The same goes for the 2013 Mitsubishi EVO Concept that will do the same as it saves weight and mechanical complexity. So look for more cars to utilize electric motors as these have plenty of torque to go around and will make for a fun and spirited drive. We do know that Mazda is in works for a propulsion system that uses stored energy from the braking process to then propel the car from a dead start and even through heavy cornering which should zoom zoom you past the pump and straight into a speeding ticket. 2013 AWD Cars
